KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Gaylord

  • When exploring Gaylord, make the most of the various car rental agencies available to enhance your experience. Opting for a car rental in Gaylord allows you to navigate the town and its environs conveniently and on your schedule. Unlike relying on public transportation with limited routes and potential delays, car rentals in Gaylord allow you to efficiently explore iconic landmarks within the town, hidden gems in the region, and even venture beyond the natural beauty of Michigan's landscapes. With Gaylord car rentals, you can easily access attractions like Otsego Lake, take scenic drives to other nearby lakes, and embark on day trips to Traverse City or Mackinaw City.
  • Cherry Capital Airport (TVC) and Pellston Emmet County Airport (PLN) are the primary gateways to Gaylord. Renting a car at these airports is hassle-free, ensuring seamless connectivity to your destination. The car rental counters are near the baggage claim in TVC's main terminal. If you are landing at PLN, you can find car rental counters in the baggage claim area. At both airports, passengers can access car rentals through a short walk. Renowned car rental agencies like Avis, Enterprise, Hertz, and Budget operate at both airports, offering a wide selection of vehicles to suit your needs.
  • Gaylord experiences a minimal presence of jaywalkers. However, exercise caution due to the prevalence of bicyclists sharing the town's diverse streets. Some areas where you might encounter potential jaywalking or bicyclists include downtown streets like Main Street and Center Avenue. When navigating the countryside, roads like Old 27 South and M-32 West can be narrow and winding, requiring careful attention. It's advisable to yield to larger vehicles around sharp corners or when approaching structures like bridges and underpasses. Additionally, cyclists often share the road with vehicles on roads like Route 32 and Route 33.
  • Car rental users in Gaylord may witness moderate rush hours, primarily during morning and evening commutes, typically from 7 am to 9 am and 4 pm to 6 pm. Busy roads like Main Street and West Main Street often experience traffic congestion, particularly during rush hours. Consider utilizing alternative routes such as M-32 West or Old 27 South to circumvent traffic. Alternatively, you can avoid roads entirely during rush hours.
  • Book your car hire in Gaylord at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Supplier choice hire cars in Gaylord are around 27% more expensive than other car types, on average

Cons:

The office where i rented had been closed for months and i was still able to make the reservation. The day i was to get the car i calked to confirm and only got a recording. When i got to the address And they we’re not in business, I called enterprise and I called priceline. Enterprise told me they did not even have me in their system at all I talk to an enterprise office in the next town away and they told me there was nothing they could do for me and that I needed to go online and make another reservation or I needed to call another enterprise office that was about an hour away from my location and I did not have a vehicle. It was a stressful day.

Pros:

When we picked up the first rental car, I was shocked by the $250 deposit. I didn't see it listed on Kayak, so I figured they weren't charging one because I was over 25. Well that rule isn't real! Haha! Luckily, the very friendly (and somehow always attractive) staff at enterprise helped work with me to make the deposit more manageable. After a few days, and a few hundred miles, the car started to chug at stops and would even stall if the RPMs got too low. We were able to swap it out very quickly for an even more comfortable car that got even better gas mileage with a little help from some more very friendly (and still attractive) enterprise staff. All around the staff was very helpful and courteous.

Cons:

The first car, the Chevy sonic, had, hopefully, the most uncomfortable seats in existence. I was so happy to be able to swap it out.

I had reserved the car for a 9a pickup. I arrived at 9:09a. I rang the "ring for service" bell several times. No one responded. Someone from the collision repair shop that is in the same building went to look for Julie, the Hertz associate. She couldn't find her. Then they page her. She still didn't show. They tried to call her cell and didn't get a response. Finally, at 9:25, she came out of a backroom. She was surprised that I was there. When the paperwork was completed, she told me I was in a white Honda, when it was actually a silver Nissan, so she had to walk me out to the car to get the right one. Because of these delays, I was 30 minutes late getting to the airport, and I had to rush to make my flight.

I filled out all of the information online and was given an estimate price and when I got to the counter they had none of that information and the car ended up costing more than I was expecting.

Pros:

They recommended another car rental place across the street.

Cons:

I reserved the car online to pick up at 8 am the following morning, and return at 4 pm. When I arrived at the office at a little after 8 am, I was told that the associate had received a text that a car would not be available, until 3 pm. Since this would not work for me at all, I declined a car.

Cons:

Very poor service at Pellston Airport. Had to wait over 45 minutes for attendant/employees (all three of them) to return to desk to pick up the car. This was not around lunch time, but late afternoon, and all three left the desk completely unattended with a "will return at" clock, and all returned together. They didn't return until 15 minutes after the sign said. No apologies or explanation given. Windshield had a crack, and fender had a pretty good sized dent, that the employees missed and wouldn't have included on the damage report had we not insisted it be put on the rental information.

The Pellston airport doesn't have any signage indicating where you drop your car off or where you go to hand in the keys. I realize it is a small airport but seriously--its 2017. Get a sign.

The pickup was great but the drop off at the Toledo Ohio airport was not very good. I had a 3:00 pm drop off and they closed at 11:30 am. I wasn’t sure what to do so I parked the car in the drop off lot and put the keys in the drop box at the budget counter. I wish someone would have been there to check the car in so I would have known if there will be any extra charges. Neil Hacker
